Black Ops 2 is set to be released on November 13, but we still haven’t had any hints of gameplay for the two main multiplayer modes. It’s already been confirmed that a new zombie mode is going to be coming and we may have an indication of what the main menu screen will look like.
The only official screenshot for zombies mode can be seen here, but apart from that Treyarch hasn’t even given a sniff of what’s in store to come. We know that Black Ops 2 is due for another reveal during GamesCom week, but that may not even turn out to be zombie related, but rather multiplayer only.
So with that in mind, cast your eyes on this mystery screenshot that has turned up over at the Se7enSins Forums. It appears to be the menu screen for the new zombies mode and if real it confirms a massive new mode – a zombies story mode. The sub heading there ‘you will understand everything’ implies that players will be able to go right to the beginning of the zombie storyline featuring the famous four characters and Sam.
It will also serve as an excellent introduction to the main Black Ops 2 zombie mode, where everything is now set in the future and we’re guessing the main character will be Sam as seen in the promotional image that Treyarch released not too long ago. Obviously there is no guarantee that this screenshot is authentic, but it certainly looks real and a story mode would be very logical in the context of the whole zombies storyline.
If Treyarch are really planning a storyline for zombies, who are you going to be playing as? Will it be a series of co-op missions with support for four players, ie – Takeo, Richtofen, Dempsey and Nikolai? It sounds like a really ambitious thing to do, but it also sounds very exciting at the same time. It also seems to be perfect shake-up that zombie mode needs for the new game, so we definitely hope this screenshot turns out to be legit.
Take a look at the screenshot through the link and let us know your thoughts on it. Do you like the idea of a co-op story mode to explain the whole story mode, before heading into the main zombie survival mode?
